About This Webinar

Do you know what a microaggression is? Do you recognize one when it occurs? More importantly, do you have the tools to counter microaggressions when you witness or experience them? Racial, sexual, and gender identity microaggressions happen every single day. “Microaggressions are everyday verbal, nonverbal, and environmental slights, snubs, or insults, whether intentional or unintentional which communicates hostile, derogatory, or negative messages to target persons based solely upon their marginalization group membership.” In addition to racial microaggressions, they can be directed towards women, LGBTQ+ persons, and those with disabilities. Oftentimes, microaggressions go unrecognizable to many of those who employ them but not to those who are the target of them. This webinar will provide an overview of microaggressions and the three distinct ways in which they occur as microassaults, microinsults, and microinvalidations. Additionally, you will learn to identify microaggressions and practical ways to counter them when they occur.

Learning Objectives: 

  1. Define what a microaggression is and how it impacts the psychological health of those targeted by them.
  2. Recognize, identify, and counter microaggressions when they occur.
  3. Develop an understanding about the way colorblind practices lead to microaggressions.
  4. Identify steps that you can take to avoid using microaggressions in all settings.
